Pranking The God Channel

I don't find these funny because they're pranking Christians, before anyone gets offended. I find them funny because the hosts have no idea what's going on. There *are* puerile and offensive ones posted up on youtube, but you won't find them here. I haven't posted those ones because they're rubbish. THESE ones are genuinely funny, I believe.
However, that said, the funniest thing about the third one is the off-camera voice saying "No! No!" as soon as the host gets a few words in and the crew realise what's going on.

NOTE: I actually feared that I would have some kind of seizure after watching these, I was laughing so hard.

EDIT: I have just stopped laughing after about seven minutes.

Horribly Disturbing News Of The Week

Eeeewwwwwwwww.



OK, this is pretty nasty. Be warned.

A woman whose noisy sex sessions were officially branded anti-social behaviour is liable to find herself behind bars if she fails to stop excessively loud lovemaking, a court has ruled.

Caroline Cartwright has been given an eight-week prison term suspended for 12 months -- meaning if she engages in over-noisy coupling again in the next year she will immediately be jailed.

"I've heard a very short extract of the noise you make and can well see that your neighbours would be upset and distressed by this," said judge Beatrice Bolton at Newcastle Crown Court.

Cartwright was served with a civil order over marathon romps with husband Steve, described in court as "unnatural" and "like they are both in considerable pain."

Neighbours at their home in Washington, south of Newcastle, had complained about the noise -- as did passers-by and the neighbourhood letter carrier.

Cartwright was served with an anti-social behaviour order, but admitted at a previous hearing to having violated it almost immediately, and repeatedly, last April.

At an earlier hearing the court was told that the local council set up special equipment in a neighbour's flat and recorded noise levels of 30-40 decibels, peaking at 47 -- as loud as a conversation in the same room.

Cartwright told the court she had tried to restrain herself.

"I did not understand why people asked me to be quiet because to me it is normal," she said, adding: "I have tried to minimise the situation by having sex in the morning - not at night - so the noise was not waking anybody.

"I may be sympathetic to it, but it is not something I am doing on purpose."

ROOOOOOOOODIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIGAAAAAAAAAAAAAN

ROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOODIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIGAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN



Been searching on the net for something to post up about Rodigan, so that if you don't know who he is then it'll enlighten you to one of my DJ heroes.... I could start with the start of this article:
Rodigan’s street cred as a selector is impeccable: every Wednesday night he pulls a crowd of hardcore, homesick yardies at Subterania, a reggae club in Ladbroke Grove. They are not allowed to smoke weed when he’s onstage. If he smells it, he stops the show - and no bottles are pelted.

But all you need to know is that he's one of the most influential and highly-respected reggae DJs in the world. He's also white, in his 50s, middle-class and comes from Oxford. For over 30 years he's been presenting reggae shows in the UK, with an appreciative audience of Jamaicans living in the UK. He's been collecting reggae vinyl for over 40 years. He's had (and still has) dubplates recorded for him from some of the biggest reggae artists in the world, interpolating his name into the biggest riddims of the day.
Check out the amazing article on him by Nazma Muller here.
Here's an extract detailing Rodigan's first public appearance in the UK after he started presenting Roots Rockers on London's Capital Radio.

A big show was being held at the Apollo Club in Willesden, one of the oldest black clubs in London. The show had been billed to the max, and he walked onstage to face a room packed to the rafters. From cheers, screams and hollers, recalls Rodigan, “a deathly silence descended upon the masses.” Mouths dropped. No! A white man! The crowd stared in disbelief: this could not be David Rodigan, the voice they listened to every week, a regular as church. The MC whispered to him, “If you don’t say something, this place is going to explode!”
As Rodigan started to speak, he could see people closing their eves, trying to match this white man’s voice with what they knew from the radio. They opened their eyes, still disbelieving until he played his signature tune, “Mash Down Rome” by Michael Prophet, and that was it. Bedlam broke out. The place went wild, and Rodigan knew he had them. The music was in control and it didn’t matter the colour of the person playing it.

Masive props to Nazma Muller for that account. Again, you should check that article out here.

Ronald Jenkees

Props to DJ Tipz (blog here)for finding the link to this one. HOLY CALAMITY SCREAM INSANITY! This is just nuts. Massively, massively dope. I'm gonna cop one of his CDs when I get paid.



Check Ronald's website here.

POW!

UPDATE:

Oh..My...LAAAAAAWWWWWWWWWWWWD



Unbelievable.

Here's something off wikipedia (for what that's worth).

Jenkees began playing music at 4 years old, when he received a toy keyboard for Christmas as a gift. Using this keyboard, he learned simple melodies and played with friends. While still at a young age, he received a Yamaha PSR-500. He attempted piano lessons in the seventh grade, but these were unsuccessful. Jenkees discovered how to sequence and layer music using his Yamaha keyboard, and began playing hip hop music. He joined a marching band in high school, and despite being unable to read sheet music, the band director let Jenkees create his own keyboard parts and "jam out" in state competitions. The band director encouraged Jenkees to learn to read music, but he continued to play by ear. He is from Kentucky.

Jenkees became enthusiastic about FL Studio after a friend introduced him to it. From about 2003, he began releasing beats and raps online under the name "Big Cheez". Under this name, he produced the 2005 album Straight Laced by Fish. In 2006, Jenkees started posting videos on YouTube to entertain people, but he later began posting music-related videos. Jenkees felt that the "goofiness" he showed helped him "not feel like such a show-off". One example would be the video in which Ronald shows people "How to snap your fingers the cool way". His videos tended to feature him wearing a hat and greeting his viewers with "Hello Youtubes". His videos gradually gained popularity, and saw a boom in popularity when Bill Simmons from ESPN.com advertised Jenkees and asked him to record his podcast theme. In 2007, Jenkees independently released his first studio album, Ronald Jenkees. In June 2009, Jenkees was featured on the STS9 album, "Peaceblaster: The New Orleans Make It Right Remixes," producing a remix of "Beyond Right Now".

On July 31, 2009, Jenkees announced via his Twitter account that he had released his second album, Disorganized Fun, on his website. It is currently available in MP3 format and physical compact discs.


Wow.

Food For Thought

My views on organised religion are not something that I wish to publicise on here, as I don't think this place is the forum for those. I am not using this post to slate anyone, religious or not (regardless of what religion they follow), it's just something that was interesting to me.

I forget where it came from now, but the following article / open letter was posted up somewhere online a few months back and I saved it, as I thought it was interesting... simply because the current bible (in common with most religious texts, I would imagine) doesn't take into account changes in culture over time. Now, I'm not saying that people's sacred texts SHOULD be changed, but what I am saying is that living your life by the literal word of something that was written / translated into English many hundreds of years ago might throw up some problems, especially if you're particularly strict about it.

Note: the "Jim" at the end of the letter ISN'T me.



"Dr. Laura Schlessinger (above) is a radio personality who dispenses advice to people who call in to her radio show. Recently, she said that, as an observant Orthodox Jew, homosexuality is an abomination according to Leviticus 18:22 and cannot be condoned under any circumstance. The following is an open letter to Dr. Laura penned by a east coast resident, which was posted on the Internet. It's funny, as well as informative:"

Dear Dr. Laura:
Thank you for doing so much to educate people regarding God's Law. I have learned a great deal from your show, and try to share that knowledge with as many people as I can. When someone tries to defend the homosexual lifestyle, for example, I simply remind them that Leviticus 18:22 clearly states it to be an abomination. End of debate. I do need some advice from you, however, regarding some of the other specific laws and how to follow them:

1. When I burn a bull on the altar as a sacrifice, I know it creates a pleasing odor for the Lord - Lev.1:9. The problem is my neighbors. They claim the odor is not pleasing to them. Should I smite them?

2. I would like to sell my daughter into slavery, as sanctioned in Exodus 21:7. In this day and age, what do you think would be a fair price for her?

3. I know that I am allowed no contact with a woman while she is in her period of menstrual uncleanliness - Lev.15:19- 24. The problem is, how do I tell? I have tried asking, but most women take offense.

4. Lev. 25:44 states that I may indeed possess slaves, both male and female, provided they are purchased from neighboring nations. A friend of mine claims that this applies to Mexicans, but not Canadians. Can you clarify? Why can't I own Canadians?

5. I have a neighbor who insists on working on the Sabbath.. Exodus 35:2 clearly states he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself?

6. A friend of mine feels that even though eating shellfish is an abomination - Lev. 11:10, it is a lesser abomination than homosexuality. I don't agree. Can you settle this?

7. Lev. 21:20 states that I may not approach the altar of God if I have a defect in my sight. I have to admit that I wear reading glasses. Does my vision have to be 20/20, or is there some wiggle room here?

8. Most of my male friends get their hair trimmed, including the hair around their temples, even though this is expressly forbidden by Lev. 19:27. How should they die?

9. I know from Lev. 11:6-8 that touching the skin of a dead pig makes me unclean, but may I still play football if I wear gloves?

10. My uncle has a farm. He violates Lev. 19:19 by planting two different crops in the same field, as does his wife by wearing garments made of two different kinds of thread (cotton/polyester blend). He also tends to curse and blaspheme a lot. Is it really necessary that we go to all the trouble of getting the whole town together to stone them? - Lev.24:10-16. Couldn't we just burn them to death at a private family affair like we do with people who sleep with their in-laws? (Lev. 20:14)

I know you have studied these things extensively, so I am confident you can help. Thank you again for reminding us that God's word is eternal and unchanging.

Your devoted fan, Jim.

The Crowd - DOPE Free Download

Well, it's a good day when I get sent something free that I like, and I can pass on to everyone else without having to worry about it...

The free SonnyJim track a couple of days back (last post) was one, and this is another.

Courtesy of the fantastic Dilla-lovin Jessica Estevez over on twitter (follow her here), here's a new act that I haven't checked for previously, but WILL be checking for from now on. They're called THE CROWD.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Here.... have a freebie!
A Memoir

...man, I swear that's a Dilla beat.
EDIT - nah, it's the same loop J-Live used in 07 though. Sounds dope.

Who are they? Well, here's the lowdown off their site.

The core of The Crowd is a trio that consists of two Emcees (Akil Dasan & Randy Mason) and a female vocalist (Adeline). Often compared to the Fugees and the Black Eyed Peas, their music is an exciting new style of Hip-Hop-Pop that draws upon The Crowd’s unique skill set. Everyone in The Crowd plays an instrument and they write and co-produce all of their material. At a Crowd show you can expect to see a live demonstration of everything that has made Hip-Hop a global phenomenon: beatboxing, bboying (breakdancing), rapping, singing, hot tracks, live instruments and of course, crowd participation. Fresh, talented and innovative, The Crowd fills up every room with a unique brand of “feel good” energy, whether at a show, in a club or blasting out your living room speakers.

I know, I know, the mention of the Black Eyed Peas might have turned you away, but come back, COME BACK! Rememebr the Black Eyed Peas DID do some dope tracks back in the day. THAT'S the type of stuff we're talking about here. You don't believe me? In which case you haven't downloaded "A Memoir" (the free track up there ^, dummy, and you're no friend of mine! Come on, trust your old pal Jimbo, I'll never steer you wrong.

Seriously, check 'em out.

Check their Facebook page here.

MASSIVE props to Ms Estevez for the heads up. Biggup!

Best of 2009 part 1

Well, there were a LOAD of things that happened in 2009. I'm not going to dwell on the horrible ones, really, but here's one of my favourites, in two chunks.

1. Christian Bale goes mental on the set of Terminator Salvation.

Now, before you hear it and think he's being completely out of order (which he sort of is), remember that he's filming a scene - not rehearsing one, but actually filming it - and some dude is wandering about directly in his eyeline moving the lights about. Now, even I know that you shouldn't just wander around a film set and start moving things about while people are filming a scene, let alone just a few feet away from the star of the film while he's filming a pivotal scene. But equally, it should have been the director who gave the bollocking, not Bale. Anyway, here's the audio.
WARNING: *definitely* not suitable for work.



2. Christian Bale has a massive argument with Peter Griffin.

Yeah, that's pretty much it, you cna guess what is going on here. Extract from Family Guy.

WARNING: *definitely* not suitable for work, again.

Peter Griffin and Christian Bale

More to follow, when I get round to it. Happy New Year!
